Ronaldo has been in Saudi Arabia since joining Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr in January 2022. The Portugal international was the first established European football superstar to arrive at the burgeoning sporting spectacle, with a sensational Saudi summer spree adding many more shining stars to the roster. Karim Benzema, N'Golo Kante, Fabinho, Roberto Firmino and many more joined Ronaldo in Saudi Arabia, sifting neatly into the four best teams in the country.
